Recently, I needed to put my car in the shop for some routine maintenance. But because I live such an on-the-go lifestyle, I couldn’t be without a car for days on end. That’s when my friends over at Mazda lent me a fabulous 2018 Mazda6 Signature to get around town. It proved to be the perfect vehicle for all my local excursions and honestly, I wish I had the time to take it on a road trip.
The 2018 Mazda6 Signature is an experience all in itself. I have driven a Mercedes-Benz for about 15 years now, and in that time I have owned two. My husband currently owns two Benzes as well. To say we are loyal to the MB brand is an understatement. However, after spending a full week test driving the Mazda, we are completely sold on this luxury vehicle that doesn’t come with a luxury price tag. Yes, I said luxury because this car has it all. In fact, some experts say the Mazda6 Signature is the closet thing you’ll find to an Audi A6. That’s impressive.
Mazda6 Signature: Luxury Features
What stood out probably the most to me was how absolutely quiet the car is. The interior is almost completely soundproof, reducing the amount of outside noise you can actually hear inside the car. In fact, the car features more than 70 noise-reduction changes not included in earlier models of the Mazda6. The car’s doorsills feature seals to keep noise from penetrating the inside. That’s luxury riding right there.
The advanced technology in this vehicle is superb. In fact, it’s way better than what’s inside my 2016 Benz. The Mazda hosts so many amazing features that keep those inside comfortable and connected to the outside world.
The car also features a new surround-view camera system. 360⁰ View Monitor, which is displayed on a 8-inch screen, is pretty incredible. It uses four separate cameras to give the driver an accurate picture of the car and its immediate surroundings.
The car also handles the road really well. Such a smooth ride can be attributed to the 19 inch alloy wheels and a completely re-designed chassis. The 2.5-liter turbocharged engine is considered one of the most powerful four-cylinders in its class. It’s a sporty car that gave this girl the kind of pick up and go that she’s used to. And it seemed the gas tank would never empty. Fuel economy is 23 miles per gallon in the city, 31 on the highway.
I travel extensively for work which sometimes means lots of luggage. The trunk space in the Mazda6 Signature is plentiful at 14.7 square feet.
This car is FABULOUS!
